Press release date: February 11, 2014
Pointe Claire, Quebec – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, announces immediate availability of Vishay's WSLP Series of very high power, current sense, Power Metal Strip resistors.
The small size of the WSLP Series resistors enables them to replace larger current sensing resistors, thus saving on the circuit board that in turn will create smaller and lighter products for the consumer.
Manufactured using proprietary techniques that result in extremely high power and low resistance values, featuring all-welded construction with a solid metal nickel-chrome or manganese-copper alloy resistive element, the resistors offer very low inductance values, an excellent frequency response and low thermal EMF.
Vishay's WSLP Series Power Metal Strip resistors are ideal for all types of current sensing and pulse applications, including switching and linear power supplies, instruments, power amplifiers, and shunts.
The WSLP Series from Vishay features a very high power to footprint size ratio, has a proprietary processing technique which produces extremely low resistance values, an all welded construction, includes a solid metal nickel-chrome or manganese-copper alloy resistive element with low TCR, offers very low inductance, excellent frequency response to 50MHz, and low thermal EMF.
